Podcast: DF #46: One Year in the Making

It's been one year since the first episode of Distributed Failure. We've gone through a few changes and potentially killed ourselves numerous times, but we managed to survive through 46 episodes (and a few special editions). We start off this episode like any other show, with user questions and what we've been playing.

We discuss Afro Samurai, Killzone 2, F.E.A.R. 2: Project Origin, Street Fighter IV, 50 Cent: Blood on the Sand, and much more. We try to find words to describe the PSN game, Noby Noby Boy, but we only end up with references to floppy cocks...and no, I don't mean chickens. I'm actually referring to those little things you use when playing badminton. After we finish up with the penis talk, we reminisce on all our good (and bad) memories of our hated podcast. We also announce the winner of our contest, but you'll have to listen to see if you're the lucky winner!

It is quite tasty, but I'm sure it will get lost in the shuffle due to the redesign and bug reporting :P ...I'll gladly be missed for that!

Posted by daniel_beck_90

 I am 'bout to give it a listen .

Posted by Kush

I hope you enjoy it db90 ...I was pretty damn tired the whole show so I can't quite remember what the hell happened, but things do get nasty on more than one occasion.

Posted by daniel_beck_90

  That was a great and funny anniversary edition ( those unzipping and penis parts were hilarious ) . Thanks for your in depth answer by the way . And you are right about the price drop and stuff  I guess . Hope I could keep listening to [and of course you could keep recording ] your shows for another year.

I'm glad you enjoyed the show...and don't forget that your audio questions are always welcome. You have a voice that could even make Chuck Norris go "Oh snap!...Crackle and pop!" ...yea, I went there! :P

Thank you for the compliments. Achievement Unlocked: Did an entire year of podcasting. I guess thats something I can mark off my bucket list.

Posted by Kush

Speaking of bucket lists...I actually sort of wanted to see that movie :P ...and @ZombiePie: If you were a princess and not a pie, you would be one lucky fella!

Hm, so this one's another "episdoe". Nice. Listening now.

Posted by Kush

Either I'm drunk, or your high...because I don't understand why you typed "episdoe" ...either way, enjoy the show! :)

Only one of these three episodes is titled correctly. ;)



Posted by Kush

Ahhh...Well I don't upload/add the file to iTunes. That failure is all thanks to Rob. I would go crazy if I did something like that.

Posted by azraeltrigger

Rob fails again. I guess he's had plenty of practice this past year.

Posted by hendersonman

Your Mom.

Posted by Kush

Fun Fact #4: Rob's mom has an undeniably charming voice...What happened with Rob!? To anyone who listened to the show: I mentioned not liking the MP in FEAR 2 from my first impressions, but my opinion has changed since my first match. I know find the MP to be pretty fun and it runs quite smoothly too.

Posted by hendersonman

your mom too :P

  I laughed out loud at this point   lol
Posted by Kush

Ok Rob...you need to post something more than just "your mom" over and over again. By the way, Rob picked up KZ2 tonight...even though he hated all over the game and the demo. Hurray for impatient money wasters!

As long as this episode has vagina jokes, it's automatically amazing!

Posted by Kush

I'm not quite sure how many vagina jokes were featured in this episode, but I do know that there were an excessive amount of penis jokes. I guess that's to be expected when you have a site called "Pixelated Sausage".

Posted by LordAndrew

Rating of -1. Someone doesn't like the podcast, it seems.
Whoever you are, would you care to offer some criticism?

Posted by Kush

@LordAndrew: I always get negs on the podcast...just haters who like to abuse the system. Maybe some of the BSHAF crew :P ...JensonB does have it out for me!

Posted by hendersonman

Well so far, after getting used to the controls and playing it last and this morning. I like the Single player a lot. I could care less about the story, to me the story is nothing special. I never feel anything for these characters, Gears 2 was better in that department.

That being said the game is just fun to play. I did try a little MP, but I found that to be shallow and boring. Maybe it gets better as you rank up. If you are a pS3 FPS fan you have no reason to not pick this up...

Posted by azraeltrigger

boo to all haters!

Posted by TheGamerGeek

Kush you seem extra pissed off in this episode. I guess it's just you being tired but still, you seem like you didn't have your morning Tea......OHHHHHHH! I'S GOTS JOKES...

Posted by Kush

I'm not really any more pissed off than usual, I just felt like expressing more of it in this episode. Rob manages to piss me off quite easily.

Posted by TheGamerGeek

I think Rob pisses everybody off easily. He just has the southern touch.

Posted by Kush

I don't discriminate against Southerners...I discriminate against coo-coo, crazy people! SFIV Update: I somehow managed to get over 5 wins now! :P

I currently have 6 online, I'm a badass, I know.

Well I've got about 8 wins now! (with about a 17% win percentage) ...I'm like a God a SFIV!

Another good show guys, a lota fun listening to it. Congratz on one year! Hope there will be a second one.

Posted by Kush

Thanks db90 and smokeH :) ...@smokeH: I can't say I remember ever hearing from you before, possible new listener!? I hope you enjoyed the show enough to keep listening to future episodes.

  • Sneak Peak of the next episode: Rob says - "OMGZ, Killzone 2 is the greatest game EVAR!!!"
Posted by smokeH

I have commented I think on two other shows but yeah pretty much a new listener. Oh and also every show so far has been enjoyable haha. One of the few gaming podcasts worth listening in my opinion.

Posted by Kush

Well thanks again smokeH, it's always nice to hear good stuff from listeners. Actually, it's good to hear anything at all. Being vocally loved or hated is better than being completely ignored :P

Posted by hendersonman

Kush, Dont make me smack you, I never said Killzone 2 was the greatest game evar. I said I think it is the best FPS I have ever played... in honor of this, Halo the pug has had his name changed to Killzone.

Posted by Kush

You couldn't smack me...I'm way too fast and agile for you to land a single finger on me. I must say that I think it's pretty nuts that you think it's the greatest FPS game you've ever played, only because I truly know that I don't even have to play the full version to know I could never say that. That may sound awful, but I know that while it may be a fun game (as well as beautiful), there isn't a great story, or anything that would stay with me for years. FPS games like the Deus Ex series, Half-Life series, Bioshock, etc...those are the type of FPS games I prefer.

I still just find it rather funny since you hated all over this game pre-release and ever after you played the demo. You bought it because you are the type of person who has to buy ever big release that comes out and now you love the game. I remember when you said, "I hope this game sucks so all the fanboys shut up!"...I replied with, "I don't hope the game sucks, I actually hope it turns out to be a great game." ...you then countered with, "Well...I hope the game is good too, but I hope it doesn't sell well so they shut up." <--- I just find that so ridiculous. And yes, my quotes aren't 100% accurate because I don't have some crazy, super-human memory, but that's about how it all went down. Crazy, crazy.

Posted by TheGamerGeek

Rob you and your unreliable talking! I loved Killzone 2 before it was realease, thought the demo was amazing. I've got the full game and it's great but no where near the greatest FPS ever.

Posted by Kush

Rob is like Lunchables. The shit is all cold and separated, but when it's time for business...everything gets thrown together into one big mess! :P ...I honestly don't know what I'm talking about right now. I just saw some Lunchables at the supermarket yesterday and remembered how much I loved the cold pepperoni pizzas when I was a youngin'.

Posted by hendersonman

Really Kush, Lunchables, thats the best you could come up with.

And yes I said all those things, because the rapid fan base of N4G fan boys who are all over that site, and half of that is sarcasm.

And I think the game plays better and is more fun then Half Life, I am mostly talking about the action and not the story, which I said I did not care about. And Dues Ex and Bioshock I dont consider as FPS as  much as I consider them First Person Action games.

Posted by Kush

Those comments had no sarcasm, don't try and deny your 360 fanboyness :P ...and the argument that you own more PS3 games than me isn't a valid argument. Also, did you ever play Deus Ex? I can't imagine you ever playing that game...and they all both FPS games too. There is no reason to start going into such a specific sub-genre. I know you're only talking about the action and not the story, but both are essential to me when calling a game "The best in the genre".

Posted by hendersonman

Your opinion is your own opinion, and I stand by my above comments. Take them or leave them.

And if I am correct, you can go through Deus ex without ever firing a shot, therefore how can it be an FPS at that point.

And I think a game could be the best in its genre with out having a story. A story just brings more to a game, but a game with a terrible story can be a lot of fun to play.

Posted by Kush

This is one of those times I'd smack you if you lived near me...and I hope you never post on the GB forums ever again. Not because I don't want you to, but because your current post count is 69 and you just can't beat 69!

Posted by TheGamerGeek

Kush totally won this battle with his last comment.

Posted by Kush

I pretty much win every argument TGG!

Posted by hendersonman

No we just let him thank that TGG :P
